They are related: Sibo or small intestine bacterial overgrowth is a result of a multitude of things, det included.

Does the "beneficial bacteria" in yogurt kill candida albicans overgrowth in your intestinal tract?
Candidal overgrowth: This urban myth has not been scientifically proven, but it has not been disproved. The "balance" between bacterial flora and yeast cells in the intestinal tract (colon) is generally regulated by what you eat. If you choose to add unpasteurized yogurt to your diet it may well change the character of your stools, since it contains lactobacilli. Same available as a probiotic for oral use. ...Read more

Candida albicans: Some feel that high sugar meals promote Candida Albicans growth. This means sweets like cakes, cookies, candy, processed breads, etc. Using whole grain flour may help a little with this because the sugar would be delivered a little more slowly to your system, but it is still sugar. High sugar fruits (pineapple, papaya, etc) might be seen this way also. ...Read more

Can bacterial overgrowth in the colon or small bowel cause loose or watery stools which are. Sometimes pale?
No: I'm confident here. Lyme disease is both a real entity and a "pop" / "fad" diagnosis. There are normally a lot of lymphocytes in the small intestinal mucosa, though having a lot in the epithelium itself is more suggestive of gluten enteropathy or a few other entities. If you've got lab support for your gluten allergy (which also has "pop" proponents), this is your explanation instead. ...Read more
Can ulcerative colitis and tropical sprue sometimes occur Together.Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and inflammation in small intestine due to e.coli?
No: Lactobacillus species are in cultured unpasteurized yogurt. In your gut you have hundreds or thousands of different organisms all in competition with each other, including candida. When the relative numbers of these are disturbed the candida can be there in greater number & more likely to produce infection elsewhere. The lactobacilli may, by competition, decrease the number of candida. ...Read more
